SummaryAdd a Summary
On a single day in 1940 Victorine reflects on her past and looks back to the extraordinary period of her life when, as a young schoolteacher, in the Vendee in the 1890s, she fell in love with a customs officer and abandoned her family for her lover and a new life in Indochina. Lush, lyrical and evocative, this novel takes the reader from the willow-lined canals of the Vendee to the sun-drenched days and languorous nights along the Mekong River at the dawn of the twentieth century.
